From the Office:
After School Homework & Study Club:  The 2015 Winter Session of Memorial School’s After - School Homework & Study Club for Grades 3-5 begins on Tuesday, January 20th and runs through Thursday, March 19th.  The purpose of the club is to help children develop effective study skills while providing them with time, structure, and supervision needed to successfully complete their homework at school.  The club will meet two afternoons per week (Tuesdays and Thursdays)  from 2:30pm to 3:30pm.  The fee is $80.  There will be no sessions on Feb 17th, and Feb 19th.  For more information, please contact the office at 781-270-1721.


From the School Nurse:  Cold & Flu Season - With winter upon us and the general increase in illness (especially flu-like symptoms), please pay very close attention to possible changes in your child’s health.  Flu-like symptoms can have a quick onset.  Within a few hours, a child can go from feeling perfectly fine to feeling ill.  It is in everyone’s best interest to increase their awareness of symptoms such as headaches, nausea, fatigue, body aches, and fever.  If your child shows these symptoms, please keep them home to avoid transmission to others at Memorial School.  Thank you.


FROM THE MEMORIAL PTO:  Save the date! Memorial Pizza Movie Night will be held on January 23rd! This wonderful Memorial tradition is sponsored by the PTO.  We will be offering 2 sessions, Session 1 at 5:00 pm and Session 2 at 6:00 pm. One movie will be shown at each session.  Please look for more information in January.
